Make no mistake, this is not a luxury hotel but a charming little pension. The rooms are extremely basic but are quite adequate although the one we stayed in was nearing refurbishment time. But this is a very old building situated just behind the Markt right on the doorstep of historic Delft. We used it as a base for travelling around the Netherlands and were very happy with our choice.
Yes, the bells from the churches make a lot of noise! If you are worried about this then stay out of town. The narrow streets carry echoing voices but again, this is all part of living right in the heart of Delft. For perfect peace and quiet, and a/c, look elsewhere.
The breakfast was very good with a different egg dish every day during our five night stay to accompany the usual north European cold cuts of meat and cheeses. The bread is baked on the premises (and very good it was too) which, as the building was originally a bakery, is entirely appropriate. Cereals and preserves are available and the coffee is excellent. On sunny days you can take breakfast in the courtyard where you will also find a mini bar with soft drinks and beer charged (on an honesty basis) at 2 euros each.
There is a pleasant lounge with a lovely view across what became our favourite bridge in Delft.
The staff are very friendly, the location is brilliant being steps away from local bars and restaurants and a 10/15 minute walk to the station.. Would we stay here if we came back to Delft? Probably.
